designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own
cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it,
but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a
Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you,
not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are
usually set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer
not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of

of people visiting our Web site and which parts of the site are
most popular. This helps us gather feedback to constantly

information that we collect online and maintain in our

What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information

We may disclose information when legally compelled to do
so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the
law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. We
may also disclose account information when we have reason
to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to
identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who
may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the
safety of our users and the Public.

We are not responsible for the practices employed by Web
sites linked to or from our Web site or the information or

be useful to the users of our Web site.

Website to another web site, our Privacy Policy is no longer
in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other web
site, including web sites, which have a link on our Website, is

citizenship. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data
accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we
have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and
managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the

Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time our site requests information from users
via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or
contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a
choice whether or not to disclose this information.
Information requested may include contact information (such
as name and shipping address), and demographic
information (such as zip code, age level). Contact
information will be used to notify the winners and award
prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of
monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

any personal information to us. If you are a minor, you can
use this service only in conjunction with permission and
guidance from your parents or guardians.

assets) is acquired, your information would be considered
part of those assets, and may be part of those assets that
are transferred.

Policy Modifications

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time.
If/when changes are made to this privacy policy, we will
email users who have given us permission to do so. We will

post any changes here, so be sure to check back
periodically. However, please be assured that if the Privacy
Policy changes in the future, we will not use the personal
information you have submitted to us under this Privacy
Policy in a manner that is materially inconsistent with this
Privacy Policy, without your prior consent.
